All About Michael Polansky, Lady Gaga’s Tech Entrepreneur Boyfriend of two+ Years

She’s off the deep end, watch as we dive in. In February 2020, Lady Gaga was spotted cozying as much as investor Michael Polansky ahead of her pre-Super Bowl performance. Page Six ran photos of the pair kissing on a balcony in Miami. Polansky was also readily available during Gaga’s Saturday night show and by her side during Super Bowl LIV, per Entertainment Tonight. Now, they’re IG official, attended the 2021 inauguration as a pair, and are going strong in 2023. Below, all the pieces we all know in regards to the musician’s man of about three years.

Polansky is a Harvard grad and works with Facebook co-founder Sean Parker.

Polansky, a Harvard graduate, runs Facebook co-founder Sean Parker’s Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy. In keeping with his LinkedIn, Polansky has served as CEO for The Parker Group, which houses the mogul’s various charities and businesses, for the last decade.

He’s clearly steeped in Parker’s dealings, as his LinkedIn also shows he’s the co-founder/executive director of The Parker Foundation and a managing partner in Parker Ventures. In keeping with the Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy website, Polansky also serves on the six-person board tasked with breaking down barriers against cancer research.

Earlier in his profession, Polansky worked at Founders Fund alongside Parker and Peter Thiel (each characters within the 2010 Oscar-nominated movie The Social Network). In 2013, he co-founded the bipartisan policy organization Economic Innovation Group (EIG), which also involves Parker. Interestingly enough, Justin Timberlake played Parker in 2010’s The Social Network, and Gaga was the musical guest on Timberlake’s May 2011 SNL episode.

He and Gaga have been spotted together before.

Before spending Super Bowl weekend together, Gaga was seen kissing Polansky in Las Vegas on Latest Yr’s Eve. Clearly, things are getting serious as he was spotted hanging out with Gaga’s family over Super Bowl weekend. Polansky reportedly spoke with Gaga’s mother Cynthia Germanotta during her daughter’s performance and danced alongside Gaga and her sister Natali during Jennifer Lopez and Shakira’s halftime show.

News of their relationship comes a few yr after Gaga ended her engagement to talent agent Christian Carino in February 2019. (Coincidentally Bradley Cooper, who Gaga was previously rumored to be involved with, had a friendly reunion along with his ex Irina Shayk on the identical weekend.)

Sources say Parker could have introduced the couple.

Per Page Six sources, Gaga and Polansky have “likely known one another for some time through events Parker has hosted at his LA mansion.” The insider claims the couple connected at Parker’s December 2019 birthday celebration.

In reality, Cooper says he met Gaga in April 2016 when she performed on the opening of the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy at Parker’s home. While there, she sang Édith Piaf’s “La Vie en Rose,” which inspired Cooper to forged Gaga in her Oscar-nominated role from A Star Is Born.

“I used to be at a cancer profit with my mother. I actually didn’t know Lady Gaga’s music,” Cooper told W magazine. “They’d a surprise musical guest, and Stefani got here out together with her hair slicked back.”

They commonly share sweet couple selfies on Instagram.

“Michael is a extremely smart guy, a really serious guy, who has at all times been low key,” a source told Page Six in regards to the CEO and investor. But on Monday, February 3, Gaga took their romance public, posting their first IG as a pair. “We had a lot fun in Miami. Like to all my little monsters and fans, you’re one of the best! ❤️” she captioned a photograph of the 2 cuddling up on a ship.

Gaga followed that post up with a Valentine’s Day shoutout to Polansky. “Comfortable Valentine’s Day!! “Babe, do I actually have lipstick all-over me?”😂#valentines ❤️💋💋💋💋💋💋💋💋💋💋💕🧚‍♀️glad v-day to all my monsters!!! I really like you!!! ❤️😘🎈,” she captioned a photograph of the pair.

Then, got here an Instagrammable sunset picture from the couple on February 18. And—in a nod to her latest single “Silly Love”—Gaga captioned a March 5 selfie with Polansky, “I’ve got a STUPID love💕.”

Gaga was “getting serious” with Polansky during quarantine.

E! spoke to a source during Super Bowl weekend about how Gaga was feeling through the first months of the 2’s romance. The source said Gaga “has been dating the identical guy for over a month. They have been seeing other since before the vacations, and she or he’s crazy about him.”

Things have only gone stronger for the couple since then. A source told Entertainment Tonight in March, “They each felt social distancing and quarantine was the best thing to do, and it’s given them time to spend together and deal with each other without work or some other distractions.” Gaga even shared a snapshot of her quarantine with Polansky on Instagram. She captioned a photograph of the couple interlocking hands, “Day 6 of self-quarantining! Going strong, playing video games and cards, and taking good care of ourselves. Essential reminder: keep your mind as stress free as possible and your body moving. #selflove #selfcare #bekind try to not pass it in case you could have it #corona it’s okay and so wonderful to remain home when you can!What a form act for the world ❤️.”

The source went on to elucidate that while Gaga desired to keep their relationship private at first, their strong connection inspired her to take their romance public. “Gaga is absolutely getting serious together with her boyfriend, and the chemistry is undeniable,” the insider said. “At first she desired to keep it low key and quiet because she had just gotten out of a relationship and thought taking it slow can be good, but that they had a direct connection, so it was tough to maintain under wraps. They were spending a lot time together, she finally decided to post on Instagram to make it official.”

Since then, the couple hasn’t been shy about going out in public together. Gaga embraced summer dressing and went nearly pantless on two separate occasions last June, with Polansky by her side. One afternoon, they were spotted grabbing iced coffee together and the opposite the couple could possibly be seen getting takeout in Malibu. On each occasions, Gaga and Polansky wore masks.

One other sign that this couple goes strong: they’re working together. On April 18, Gaga shared that Polansky was helping fundraise for those on the frontlines of the pandemic through the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. “With a few of my co-fundraisers @booconnor @michaelpolansky #oneworld #togetherathome Miss you @wanaynay our other co-fundraiser and producer and missing our other co-fundraisers @who & @glblctzn,” captioned a photograph of the pair wearing matching Together at Home merch.

Gaga also referenced Polansky’s work during an interview with Morning Joe. “With Born This Way Foundation, my mother, Cynthia Germanotta, and our co-founder Maya [Enista Smith], who I really like so very much—they’re working with my, the love of my life on something for mental health,” Gaga said, per People.

Polansky’s ex-girlfriend has spoken about his relationship with Gaga.

Ever wonder what it will feel wish to see your ex dating a celeb? Lindsay Crouse, senior staff editor at The Latest York Times and Polansky’s ex, wrote in regards to the experience in a February 2020 op-ed. Titled, “My Ex-Boyfriend’s Latest Girlfriend Is Lady Gaga,” she explored what it was wish to see Polansky, whom she dated for seven years, be photographed by Gaga’s side in paparazzi shots. “Lady Gaga is amazing,” Crouse wrote, concluding his relationship had a positive impact on her outlook. “Comparing yourself together with her is incredibly motivational, and I like to recommend you are trying it, no matter the way you relate to who’s dating her.”

Polansky likes to support and “take care” of Gaga.

Five months into their relationship, Polansky was reportedly a support system for Gaga as she released her sixth album, Chromatica. The night her long-awaited record dropped, Gaga and Polansky celebrated the occasion by dancing to her latest song, “911.” Sporting masks and socially distancing, the pair danced in front of a background of shiny pink and metallic balloons that spelled “Chromatica.”

In keeping with an Us Weekly source in June 2020, Polansky enjoys attending to his girlfriend in multiple ways. “She likes to be wined and dined and brought care of, and Michael definitely does that for her,” a source told the outlet of Gaga. “He likes to handle her and spoil her, and so they like to travel together.” The insider added, “Michael may be very wealthy and likes to treat her to nice things and experiences.”

They each enjoy Italian cooking.

Gaga has long praised her Italian heritage and has been known to cook an authority bowl of pasta. She even cooked some for Cooper once they met about A Star Is Born. Last August, the singer shared a number of snapshots from a night-in cooking with Polansky. While he doesn’t appear in any of the photos, Polansky does get a shoutout within the caption. “I put rosé in my Bolognese. Making dinner with love🌹and a few spicy Italian gravy. Like to everyone!! 🍽🍷 🧊🥃🍾 mangia !!!!!! Xxxxxxoooooxoooo🥂” she wrote alongside some kitchen shots and a few selfies. Gaga added, “I really like connecting with my culture with someone I really like ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️.”

He attended the inauguration by Gaga’s side.

One other major milestone of their relationship was attending the inauguration together. Gaga, wearing a custom Schiaparelli Haute Couture gown, was readily available to sing the national anthem at President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’s inauguration. Polansky went to the historic event as her date and was spotted sharing a masked kiss with Gaga. A source told Us Weekly that ahead of her performance Gaga was “grateful to have the support of Joe, Jill, her family, her boyfriend and the American people.”

He gets her very thoughtful gifts.

For Gaga’s thirty fifth birthday on March 28, Polansky sent her a large bouquet of flowers that she described as “all of the flowers in Rome.” For those who take a have a look at this photo, she’s not flawed.

“I’ll say I’m very excited to have kids,” Gaga said. “I sit up for being a mom. Is not it incredible what we are able to do? We will hold a human inside and grow it. Then it comes out, and it’s our job to maintain it alive. It is so funny—everyone works out of my house every single day. After they are available in, I at all times say, ‘Welcome to the Womb!'”

A source said things are getting “pretty serious” nearly two years in.
